Abstract


The main aim of this study is to identify the relationship between three variables (i.e. trust, access to information and access to opportunity to learn and develop) and perceived organizational support. This study also aims to identify the most effective predictor of perceived organizational support. The respondents comprise 312 lecturers from 25 private institutions of higher education in three Malaysian states (Kedah, Penang and Kelantan). Correlation analyses show high positive relationship between antecedents (trust; access to information; and access to opportunity to learn and develop) and perceived organizational support. Regression analysis indicates that all three antecedents under study are significant predictors of perceived organizational support. Trust is identified as the most effective predictor of perceived organizational support. In addition to managerial implications and limitations of the study, direction for future research are also suggested at the end of this study.
